Zamfara: Marafa Faction Drags APC To Supreme Court



The Senator Kabiru Marafa led faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara State has gone to the Supreme Court.

This was made known by the Publicity Secretary of the faction, Bello Bakyasuwa, during a press briefing in Gusau on Monday.

Naija News reports that the Court of Appeal, Sokoto Division, last Thursday, affirmed the congresses that produced the party executives led by Lawal Liman.

The judgement also set aside an earlier judgement by a Zamfara High Court, which nullified the congresses.

According to Bakyasuwa, the faction is seeking the interpretation of the judgement on the APC congresses in the state.

He said: “We have decided to go to the Supreme Court for the interpretation of the judgement on the APC congresses made by the Appeal Court, Sokoto Division. I think the State High Court, Gusau nullified the congresses because of lack of merit.

“We believe that setting aside the earlier judgement does not mean that the party leadership should be handed over to Yari’s faction. Those saying our faction wants to disrupt peace in the state chapter are misunderstanding us.”

Bakyasuwa said all they want is justice and fairness and an end to impunity in Zamfara.

While accusing the national leadership of the APC of bias, he said the Mai Mala Buni-led party failed to address the issues.

“We are not satisfied with any decision to give the Yari led faction the control of the party. To avoid future embarrassment, we are appealing to the Mai Mala Buni’s Caretaker Committee to initiate peaceful ways of addressing the crisis,” Bakyasuwa said.
